In October Chevelle will bring their brand of heart-thumping drums and dark-overdriven guitar riffs back to the UK in support of their new single “Hunter Eats Hunter” (check it out below). Taken from their latest album La Gárgola the track will be released on 20th October ahead of the band’s upcoming 3 date UK tour. These shows will see the band taking in Manchester, Birmingham as well as returning to London after last year’s sold date at the Islington Academy.
Chevelle were last seen on these shores earlier this year where they delivered an exhilarating performance at Download Festival, following the release of their latest album.
Released at the start of June through Epic – Sony Music, La Gárgola (Spanish for The Gargoyle) was described as “a sonic reinvention for the band” by front man Pete Loeffler [guitars, vocals], “I don’t want Chevelle to sound like every rock band out there, I wanted to create something fun in a dark way.”
La Gárgola debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the U.S becoming the band’s highest charting album. Produced by Joe Barresi [Queens of The Stone Age, Tool, Coheed and Cambria] songs like “The Damned” and “Jaw Breaker” characterise the prevailing feel of La Gárgola.
